No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" “When you're left wounded on
Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur

" “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”
“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Obituary Lieutenant Colonel Zulkapli 410707 (Retired) - Royal Military College April 1970 Regular Intake 14
Saturday, March 19, 2022

Lt Col Zul left the service on the 1st of July 1993, there were teary eyes all around when he was towed out in an Armoured Fighting Vehicle, himself included.

He was commissioned into 7th Rangers as a 2nd Lieutenant and after that came back as as the Commanding Officer. He was one of the most dynamic and loved Commanding Officer 7th Rangers ever had. Soldiers of 7th Rangers described him as "my best friend". They loved him.

You will not find an officer like him, on Fridays when the Muslims go for their Friday prayers, he allowed the training wing to be used as a place of prayers and gatherings for the Christians. When the Hindus conducted their pilgrimage to the Maran Temple by foot from all over Malaysia from as far as Kuala Lumpur which is 178 km, he had tents placed in front of the camp, with medics to attend to the pilgrims plus refreshments,  the Battalion Regimental Sergeant Major was a Chinese under him.

Every faith festivals were celebrated on a grand scale  be it Gawai, Deepavali, Christmas and Hari Raya. He was one person who did not look at the color of your skin or faith. He told one officer during the color parade in Ipoh,  "You leave an organization, when you are at the best. That's leaving gracefully". That is the reason he left early.

He led the Battalion converting it from a standard infantry battalion into a Mechanized Infantry Battalion, prepared it for it's mission to Somalia. Under him the Battalion emerged champions for the shooting competition in the Brigade.  The Battalion had more than 270 marksman class soldiers.

His mentor when he first joined the unit in the 70's was Captain Ropee. Sadly the Colonel left us on the 14th of December 2021 at around 1029 hrs. His place of rest is at "Tanah Perkuburan Raudhatul Sakinah, Taman Selasih, Karak". Rest in Peace, sir!

    Indeed he was one of the best Commanding Officer that 7 RRD ever had, during his time I'm a footballer for the 7 RRD MECH team, and he treated us like anak mas.

    Well respected CO. Late Lt Kol Zul was the one recommended me to take over from KM Taha which I feel he has the trust in me but unfortunately I served a short while under his command. Always meet him whenever I visit my relative in Taman Melewar where he resides. May he RIP

    Lt Col Zulkifli bin Abd Rahman the best of commanding officer with me. Dizaman era pemerintahan beliau sebagai Pegawai Memerintah Bn Ke 7 Rejimen Renjer DiRaja banyak kenangan manis yang tak dapat dilupakan. Saya sebagai Chief Clark semasa era pemerintahannya walaupun tugas dan tanggungjawab itu berat bagi menguruskan dokumentasi pegawai dan LLP namun terasa ringan senang berurusan dengan beliau.

    Detik kenangan yang tak dapat dilupakan semasa Penganugerahan Panji² DiRaja utk Bn Ke 7 Rejimen Renjer di Ipoh, Perak, banyak peristiwa pahit dan manis yang sukar dilupakan, walaupun letih dan penat namun gembira & happy kami tetap seiringan dengannya (Lt Col Zulkifli). Kebajikan kami sentiasa diberi keutamaan oleh beliau semasa urusan pentadbiran untuk hari bersejarah semasa Penganugerahan Panji² Rejimen Renjer DiRaja dibawah pimpinannya.

    Seorang CO yang Happy Go Lucky dan Berintergeriti. The Best of Commanding Officer. Agi Idup Agi Ngelaban.... Thanks all.

    A true officer and a gentleman. Respected by his officers and men. A father figure to all his soldiers. He will always be remembered for his excellent service to his country. May his soul rest in peace.

     
  • At 8:39 AM, Anonymous Brigadier General Nazrul Edgar said…

    Good truthful write Bro. He indeed was a gem of an officer, gentlemen and superior. Sadly not many of follow on generation of officers have learned, picked up or are able to emulate his leadership ways. He was one of the rare few that had the courage to institute and make the difference. May he be blessed among the righteous.

     
  • At 10:34 AM, Anonymous Major General Datuk Toh Choon Siang said…

    LtC Zul was an officer & a gentleman par excellence. We served together (mid 80s) as instructors in PULADA but in different wings. A truly professional & dedicated ranger officer who always gave his best in getting things done. He was ever willing to assist anyone who seeks his assistance. We will be missing another great comrade in arms & a reputable veteran. May his soul RIP🙏🏿

     
  • At 12:19 PM, Anonymous Staff Sergeant Joseph Sujar said…

    Rest in Peace, sir

     
  • At 10:24 AM, Anonymous Sergeant Shamsuddin said…

    He was an amazing person he was also responsible for the Orang Asli Company at 22 Commando in Kuala Kubu Baru. He was good that is why he was given charge of that company. When he left the service our army lost a good experienced leader, can you see any of our current generals to be as good as him? None. May he be in the place of the righteous, that is what everyone will pray for such a giant of a man.
